Publisher's Summary

"A captivating Cold War page-turner." (Real Simple)

The New York Times best-selling author of The Summer Wives returns with a gripping and profoundly human story of Cold War espionage and family devotion.

In the autumn of 1948, Iris Digby vanishes from her London home with her American diplomat husband and their two children. The world is shocked by the family’s sensational disappearance. Were they eliminated by the Soviet intelligence service? Or have the Digbys defected to Moscow with a trove of the West’s most vital secrets?

Four years later, Ruth Macallister receives a postcard from the twin sister she hasn’t seen since their catastrophic parting in Rome in the summer of 1940, as war engulfed the continent and Iris fell desperately in love with an enigmatic United States Embassy official named Sasha Digby. Within days, Ruth is on her way to Moscow, posing as the wife of counterintelligence agent Sumner Fox in a precarious plot to extract the Digbys from behind the Iron Curtain.

But the complex truth behind Iris’s marriage defies Ruth’s understanding, and as the sisters race toward safety, a dogged Soviet KGB officer forces them to make a heartbreaking choice between two irreconcilable loyalties.

Wonderful Listen

I thought this was an excellent story line and great listen - loved the Narrator, which is a good thing cause we audio folks know a poor narrator ruins the story. The story line flowed well and i enjoyed the the entire book.

Interesting historical fiction

Loved the idea of this story but had a hard time falling in love with the characters and their lives. The book is true to the time period but it just didn't really do it for me.

I Almost Gave Up On This Book

I almost gave because of the narration. I actually bought the book on Kindle because of the narration.
